Measuring partial discharge for increased uptime


Prysmian Group’s PRY-CAM is designed for condition assessment and asset management of electrical systems and equipment from 3 kV to 600 kV. The technology allows fast, accurate and reliable on-line measurements of Partial Discharge (PD) and key parameters of any electrical equipment for system diagnosis and defect localisation purposes, to helps electric assets owners to increase uptime, asset longevity and safety, while reducing maintenance costs and risks.

There is no need to switch off the monitored system and collected data is stored via the cloud. This can be accessed remotely, shared and analysed using an artificial intelligence interface that generates automated alarm signals if a critical situation is identified.

Roberto Candela, CEO of Prysmian Electronics, comments: “We are marking a turning point in the technology for power grids diagnostics, monitoring and maintenance systems and services and we are moving from the role of pure cable manufacturer to cable system integrator.”

Prysmian Electronics reported a significant growth in 2018 and was awarded important contracts for power grids monitoring systems by the main Utilities world-wide, including Italy, UK, Middle East, China, USA and Singapore.
